I often over-buy in an effort to not have to go shopping so often. Because we have particular items we want from three different stores, keeping the panty stocked keeps me from having to make those added trips. I easily have the suggested panty item list
covered, plus some. With storage not a limitation, bulk purchases make it possible to feed an army! My Costco fresh bulk items are at risk of going bad if not I haven’t planned or used accordingly.
Most of our meals are spontaneously created with proximate plans for the next night or two. Some routines kick in, like standard Vitamix (our 2015 big investment in nutrition) smoothies for breakfast (loaded with lots of good stuff), packed lunches for each of us, Friday night out, weekend sour-dough and sprouted wheat bread/bisquit baking, daily kefir making, and weekend meals with leftovers. Oh, and vThat said, planning is a challenge. Considerations due to our family special diets: my wife doesn’t eat any sugar or sweetner of any kind, no fruit, nothing but sprouted-grain flours, no white rice or white potatoes and no dairy. My child is fructose intolerant and should avoid gluten. I am someplace in between.eggie juice made most weekends (favorite is kale, carrot and ginger).
Equipment — hated to cave to fads but the Vitamin demonstrator sold me on it when she used an avocado seed in a delicious frozen dessert! With Tuesday’s pesto recipe using the hand held mixer, I may cave for purchasing one of those. Love my Juiceman, Vitamix and rice cooker. Could use a new pan or two.
NOTE: We often have extra kefir culture to give away. Ask me in class if you want me to save you some.
